I have always loved her simple style, but whenever I try to copy it I end up going overboard and end up with something not so clean and simple.
Well, Late Blossom has a weekly challenge called One Layer Wednesday, and in order to groom a clean and simple style, I will need to challenge myself. So I finally decided to jump in and play along with her challenges.
This week, the OLW challenge is to use a tree stamp.
Here's what I ended up with,
I used a CTMH stamp set B1319 Four Seasons, black ink, Flower Soft stuck on with Liquid Glass, and a scrap of black hemp because I thought it looked bare without it (Hello,CAS challenged, remember?) I think I could really get to like this CAS thing, this card took all of 10 minutes to make. The glue isn't even dry in this picture. I just want to spend less time on my cards and more time on my scrapbooks. Afterall, most people will toss a card after it starts to collect dust. Not me, but most people.
But the best part is the cheesy sentiment inside.
I thought about stamping it, but didn't feel like piecing together all those letters, and printing it out from the computer would make it a 2 layer card, which breaks the rules. So, I handwrote it, even though I don't like my handwriting...Wow, this CAS style is so liberating!
Oh yes I did. The minute I saw this stamp set that song popped into my head. I've been dying to use it.
I may be dating myself, but I always sing along to James Taylor. I sing to Lady Gaga too, I'm a cool Mom.
But just to make me feel older than I already do, I have to share this:
On a recent summer road trip, I was singing along to Bon Jovi "Living on a Prayer", and my 9 yr old Shane whined from the backseat, "Mom, can you pleeeease change the station? I don't like music from the nineteen hundreds!"
My husband thought it was hilarious. OK, I laughed too...that kid is making me gray.
